New Movie Catholics Should Support

by Steve Ray on June 26, 2013

Tim Staples writes:

As some of you know, I [Tim Staples] have a very small part in the up-coming movie, “Little Boy.” There are pre-screenings happening across the country right now. I play a “soldier in the hospital” and I have three lines. Thus begins and ends my Hollywood career.

But seriously, I really believe we need to support groups like Metanoia Films (the producers of this excellent film) who are trying to make a positive impact in Hollywood from the inside. And, as you will see in this movie, with actors and actresses like Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, David Henrie, Kevin James, Sean Aston, Cary Tagawa, Ted Levine, Michael Rapaport, Ben Chaplaine, Ali Landry, and Eduardo Verastigui, this is truly a quality movie in spite of the producers poor choice for the “soldier at hospital.”

 Be sure to see it and often when it comes out!

Game Show Nuns Hoping for $100,000 Win

Finale Airs Thursday

SAN FRANCISCO, May 22, 2013 (Zenit.org) – A trio of Bible-expert nuns are hoping to be awarded $100,000 and a $10,000 bonus when they compete in Thursday’s finale of “The American Bible Challenge.”

The three nuns, Sisters Peter Joseph, Maria, and Evangeline, are Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Their community was founded only in 1997 in Michigan. Now the group has more than 120 sisters, many of whom are in their 20s.

The team has already won two preliminary rounds. The final show airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT. 

The grand prize is $100,000. The winner of the American Bible Challenge Fan Favorite contest will be announced during the show, as well. The prize for being voted the “fan favorite” is an additional $10,000 for the team’s charity.

Should they win, the Dominican Sisters will use their prize to provide for the treatment and care of the aging sisters in the order, and to ensure that they are provided for as they advance into retirement.

Sister Peter Joseph spoke with ZENIT last month about the experience of evangelizing through a game show.
